Protect Hanover

Plan for a better tomorrow

On December 11, 2019, Virginia Governor Ralph Northam and Rochester, NY based Wegmans Food Markets Inc. announced the planned construction of a distribution center in central Hanover County.

Protect Hanover is a group of concerned neighbors working together to prevent the devastating impacts of the proposed Wegmans distribution center on surrounding communities and the environment.

Protect Hanover and its supporters have made significant progress in bringing the community’s many concerns to light. The overwhelming feedback from the community has made a huge impact! But we still need your support!
